Ah, Viceroy, perhaps one of the finest hotels in Darjeeling. There are many charming features of this hotel and the food is excellent (it is very difficult to find good Indian food in Darjeeling). But one unfortunate thing is that they follow the odious trend of playing Muzak in the lobby (for those unfamiliar with the term Muzak, it means that insipid pseudo music one usually encounters in such places as elevators, dentist waiting rooms, etc.). Many of the 'higher end' hotels in India follow this custom, undoubtedly they've been taught this in hotel management school, and they even all have exactly the same CD of this horrid stuff (you'll hear the Muzak version of the theme from Titanic again and again and again). In the case of Viceroy they play this stuff at such a volume that it can even be heard in the room and will invade your dreams even. Also, one has to go to the lobby to use wifi, unlike the horrible soundtrack the wifi signal will not reach the rooms.
